A local man accused of shooting someone earlier this month in west Shreveport is behind bars Tuesday morning.

Investigators tell KMSS 23-year-old Jeremy J. Jackson, of Shreveport, surrendered to authorities at the Caddo Correctional Center last night after learning two warrants were out for his arrest.

Jackson is charged with one count each of attempted second degree murder and convicted felon in possession of a firearm for his alleged role in the shooting of 28-year-old Tyrone Youngblood back on May 12 in the 2700 block of Amherst Street.

Youngblood, who was shot multiple times in the torso, was taken to a local hospital, where he is currently recovering from his injuries.

Detectives believe the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the two men. Youngblood apparently had been involved in an altercation with Jackson’s girlfriend after which Jackson confronted him, pulled a handgun and fired at least six shots at him.

Jackson’s bond has been set at $200,000.
